The most common methods of removing or varying a covenant are:
- Applying for a variation or removal via a planning permit lodged with Frankston City Council.
- Lodging an application through the Supreme Court.
An application through Council will involve advertising to all beneficiaries of the covenant and an advertisement in the newspaper to ensure that there are no valid objections in the community. Generally, if a beneficiary objects to the issuing of a planning permit to vary or remove a covenant, Council will likely have to refuse your application.
It is strongly advised you engage the services of a planning professional or conveyancer to submit and manage your application with Council.
